      In this paper, a literature overview is presented on the use of laser rangefinder techniques for the retrieval of forest inventory parameters and structural characteristics. The existing techniques are ordered with respect to their scale of application (i.e. spaceborne, airborne, and terrestrial laser scanning) and a discussion is provided on the efficiency, precision, and accuracy with which Cited by: The Journal of Applied Remote Sensing (JARS) is an online journal that optimizes the communication of concepts, information, and progress within the remote sensing community to improve the societal benefit for monitoring and management of natural disasters, weather forecasting, agricultural and urban land-use planning, environmental quality monitoring, ecological restoration, and numerous.

    Introduction. Retrieving tropical forest stand structure parameters from remotely sensed data is of primary importance for estimating global carbon stocks in above‐ground biomass (Houghton et al. ; Grace ) as well as for obtaining large‐scale information required by regional biodiversity studies and forest type classification and mapping (Tuomisto et al. ).Cited by: Estimation of Forest Fuel Load From Radar Remote Sensing Semiempirical algorithms were developed to estimate crown and stem biomass and three major fuel load parameters, namely: 1) canopy fuel weight; 2) canopy bulk density; and 3) foliage moisture content. These estimates, when compared directly to measurements made at plot and stand Cited by:

Remote sensing–based forest aboveground biomass (AGB) estimation has been extensively explored in the past three decades, but how to effectively combine different sensor data and modeling algorithms is still poorly understood.

Measurements and Estimations of Forest Stand Parameters Using Remote Sensing - CRC Press Book Generally speaking, the use of remote sensing imagery will reduce field work. Remote sensing imagery gives an overall view of the forest in addition to more detailed information, the extent of which depends mainly on scale and film used in case of analogue data, and mainly on pixel size in case of d.

This volume deals with measurements and estimations of forest stand parameters using aerial photographic, aircraft and satellite scanning data, radar and laser imagery. It includes technical and statistical information of practical examples from both temperate and tropical forests.

Mohamadi and shataee [22] investigated the possibility of estimation of tree diversity using Landsat ETM+ data in the Hyrcanian forests, northern of by: remote sensing applications involve estimation of either canopy cover (Gemmell ) or individual tree canopy area (Kalliovirta and Tokola ) as an intermediate stage in distinguishing the signals reflected from forest canopy and forest floor, after which, for instance, estimation of timber volume becomes possible (Bolduc et al.Maltamo.

A brief introduction is presented in the first section. The ground measurement techniques are described in the second section. It is then followed by various remote sensing methods for biomass estimation using optical remote sensing data (Section ), lidar. The air photo dot-count method is now widely and successfully used for estimating operational forest area in the USDA Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program.

Recently, numerous studies have attempted to determine forest height using remote sensing techniques that not only have the benefits of fast data acquisition, processing, and analysis but are also cost-effective.

However, if there was insufficient data to apply the latest remote sensing techniques, we need to consider many kinds of datasets as possible. In this study, we tried to determine Cited by: 2. 2 of 13 42 scale data acquisition, and cannot meet forestry production and ecological construction needs of the 43 time[4,5].With the advantages of that information can be collected quicker over larger geographical 44 areas at relatively lower costs, remote sensing technology has been widely used in the extraction of 45 forest composition and structural parameters, providing a strong Author: Shiqin Xie, Wei Wang, Qian liu, Jinghui Meng, Tianzhong Zhao, Guosheng Huang.

The various approaches attempt to stratify the forest by degradation type or intensity, or use proxies as an indicator of change. Forest disturbance, arising from logging, burning, disease or insect infestations, can be monitored by remote sensing approaches that detect changes in Cited by: A stand-level inventory is appropriate as a minimum unit for local and regional forest management.

The best stand-based accuracy using satellite sensor images was m−3 ha−1 (36%) RMSE for stand volume, m−3 ha−1 a−1 (49%) for annual increase in stand volume, where κ = Optical remote sensing data, with a variety of spatial and temporal resolutions, have been widely used for forest biomass estimation using different types of image processing techniques.

Using the 30 cm images the deviations of the photogrammetrically estimated mean stand height amounted to m (%) on average, whereas using the 10 cm images the deviations amounted to m (%) compared to the field estimation.
